I had this in mind for days now, I had to do something with this pant skirt. I have had it for ages, and I didn´t like it anymore, so I gave it the change it was needing... boyfriend shorts!
I´ve used another shorts I had to mark the length. I´ve added another mark three cm and the last one, six cm from the first mark, so I could do the hem.
I´ve cut the pants legs where the lower mark wass and then, I´ve turn the pants inside out.
As the pant skirt was extra-wide, I had to narrow it, but no worries, it´s easier than it seems. You try them on (inside out) and pin them to fit. Then, you need to sew the new seam following the pins line.
Now, cut the excess of fabric and finish off with zigzag stitch. Turn the pants inside out again.
The last step is doing the hem. Just fold the pant legs twice, following the marks you did at the begining (3 and 6cm). Sew a couple of hidden stitches to the sides to secure the hem.
And new shorts for roller skating! Easy, isn´t it? Hope your week started out great...
